Let’s put aside for the moment Sullivan’s recent hurricane of innuendo. Let’s look just at his weirdness today:
[John] Edwards was a national figure …Palin has been several time zones away in the Alaskan wilderness
Andrew Sullivan at The Atlantic, A New Paradigm?
Is Andy really trying to insinuate Palin’s unreadiness because of geography? Such an early adopter of blogging and the immediate worldwide reach of communications might think twice before mentally consigning anyone living outside the Beltway to a frightening terra incognita, populated by the Anthropophagi, and men whose heads do grow beneath their shoulders, and hockey moms and all the other people trying to live lives without too much time spent thinking about their betters in DC.
This outsider meme will come back to bite Mr Sullivan on his enthusiastically-employed arse. If change is what’s wanted then why not look away from Washington?
